/*16th Int. Symposium on Advances in Robot Kinematics - ARK 2018,*//*
*//*July 01-05, 2018*//*
*//*Bologna, Italy*/

Advances in Robot Kinematics (ARK) is a series of international symposia 
focusing on the theory and applications of robot kinematics. They are 
being organized every two years since 1988, and run under the patronage 
of the Int. Federation for the Promotion of Mechanism and Machine 
Science. Ever since the first symposium, ARK has attracted the most 
eminent authors and has continued to grow in terms of number of 
participants and scientific impact. ARK provides a forum for researchers 
working in the filed of robot kinematics and stimulates new directions 
of research by forging links between robot kinematics and other areas.

Paper topics include, but are not limited to:
•    kinematics of robots
•    robot modelling and simulation
•    robot design
•    kinematics in robot control
•    theories and methods in kinematics
•    singularity analysis
•    kinematic problems in parallel robots, redundant robots, cable 
robots, overconstrained linkages
•    kinematics in biological systems, humanoid robots and humanoid 

Authors are invited to submit a full paper through the webpage of the 
conference, starting from September 2017. Each submission will be 
peered-reviewed and accepted papers will be included in an edited book 
published by Springer.

Important dates:
• Full-paper submission: January 14, 2018
• Acceptance notification: February 28, 2018
• Final paper submission: March 18, 2018

Detailed information will be presented on the conference website
